Occupation Romeo

Grade 10 is studying Shakespeare in a unique way.  During this activity, one student was called up and a handout of Act 1 Scene 1 of Romeo and Juliet was given to them. The student then had to pick an occupation out of a box and enact the lines as if he/she were that occupation.  Through this activity, the students’ were able to get the form of the text and perform it as well. They learned how choice colours meaning. This activity helped students stretch their imagination when they looked at Shakespeare, while making it more accessible to them.
